We saw it. Of course I hated watching myself, I always do, I am very critical of myself, I get this from my Mother, I'm fairly certain of this. I'm thinner now, or at least I think I am, because this was taped months and months ago, so I kept obsessing on what a bad decision it was to wear that sweater, but I wore it for my friend Atra who made it for me.
I thought they did a good job with it, with the editing and the story, but like I said, I absolutely hated looking at myself, I kept thinking, why am I frowning, look at that enormous double chin. But the kitchen, Beau, Irma and the kids looked good. So much effort for such a little thing. It was over in a snap. It made me miss Irma and the kids and Tea Tea. Irma called which was nice.
Scott is sitting here next to me drifting in and out of sleep, snoring and then waking up. We have the first season DVD of Friends on. I didn't watch the first season, or any of the other seasons really, I just kind of dipped in and out of it, loving it when I did watch it, but never watching it consistently, so I'm trying to catch up. It's very weird watching the very first show and seeing how different everyone was back then.
Jennifer Aniston seems so much girlier here than the way she ended up, her vocal placement is airier and higher pitched. Lisa Kudrow started out as more of a hippy character, and then later kind of dropped that. Matt Le Blanc seems so much younger and less "How you doin?" Joey than he turned out. David Schwimmer seems younger and more tentative but Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry seem to have remained kind of consistent throughout, you know what I mean, they seem like they had already arrived when the show started, whereas everyone else kind of grew into their roles, either that or the writers grew into them.
I'm wondering two things about this; 1.) Where's the monkey? and 2.) When I read that Jennifer Aniston lost a lot of weight in the beginning of the show, they couldn't have been referring to the way she looks here in episode one could they? How can she get any thinner than this, her face is pointy she's so thin?
Scott is definitely snoring now. We're both exhausted for different reasons but we have to stay awake so we can pick Beau up when he comes back from his party. Zack's parents said they think they'll be back at 12:30, so I asked Scott to stay with me so he could drive, I had to take another pain pill. The little plastic cuppy thing that my dentist glued over the hole where my tooth was, came loose and was digging into my gum with every bite of food that I tried to chew. When I realized that it was loose and had come unglued I decided to take it all the way off. This involved scissors and cutting stitches. Not fun. But at least now I can chew. Ooooh Ron is going to be so mad at me...
Oh great I just reached over to put my tea cup down on my night stand but before I could set it down I just dropped it in mid air, drugs anyone? Sheesh. At least the cup didn't break. It's one of my favorite, one of those cups that has a secret image that appears when it heats up. I did the same thing a few nights ago. I am going to get off of these pills as soon as I can, as soon as my tooth hole stops hurting, or as soon as someone steals them from me, this should happen pretty quickly, maybe I should hide them, heh.
Well, I just wanted to check in, say hello and thank you for watching the show if you did. I swear I look better now than I did when we taped it, but considering that I'm gaining weight I may look that way again soon if I'm not careful. My friend Karen called tonight to tell me that she read there's something new they're doing to make the surgery I had more effective so that the kind of thing that's happening to me doesn't happen, a plastic ring of some kind that prevents the stomach from stretching back out, blah. Oh well...
Big weary hurting hugs from your pal,
